Pep Guardiola remains fully committed to his contract and role at Manchester City, claims Alberto Galassi, with “nonsensical” reports of an imminent move to Juventus being rubbished.
Serie A giants Juve are preparing to bid farewell to Massimiliano Allegri , meaning that a high-profile post is about to open up.
It has been suggested that Guardiola is among those the Bianconeri would like to bring on board.
City board member Galassi insists that is not the case, with Guardiola having already stated that he intends to honour an agreement at the Etihad Stadium before considering any new challenge.
“As a Manchester City advisor, I was very surprised to read that a news agency broke completely nonsensical news,” Galassi told Sky Sport Italia .
“What Pep said last week obviously went unheard.
“First of all, the coach wants to stay at the club and he still has two years left on his contract.
“Second, a club like Juventus wouldn’t have allowed the leak of news of this magnitude. They would have contacted us first.
“It’s impossible to think that there will be a presentation in a few days. The news is completely untrue. It’s ridiculous.”
